  • 3 Running Express SetupWhen you first set up the switch, you should use Express Setup to enter the initial IP information. Thisenables the switch to connect to local routers and the Internet. You can then access the switch throughthe IP address for further configuration.

    To run Express Setup:

    Step 1 Verify that no devices are connected to the switch, because during Express Setup, theswitch acts as a DHCP server. If your PC has a static IP address, before you begin youshould change your PC settings to temporarily use DHCP.

    Step 2 Connect the AC power cord to the switch and to a grounded AC outlet. The power-onself-test (POST) begins. During POST, the LEDs blink while a series of tests verify that theswitch functions properly.

    For a DC-powered switch, see the Connecting to DC Power section on page 16 forwiring instructions.

    Step 3 Wait for the switch to complete POST. It might take several minutes for the switch tocomplete POST.

    Step 4 Verify that POST has completed by confirming that the SYST and STAT LEDs are green.

    Step 5 Press and hold the Mode button for3 seconds. When all of the LEDsabove the Mode button turn green,release the Mode button.

    If the LEDs above the Mode buttonbegin to blink after you press thebutton, release it. Blinking LEDsmean that the switch has alreadybeen configured and cannot go intoExpress Setup mode. For moreinformation, see the Resetting theSwitch section on page 20.

    Step 6 Verify that the switch is in Express Setup mode by confirming that all LEDs above theMode button are green. (The RPS LED remains off on some switch models.)

  • Step 12 Enter this information in the Network Settings fields:

    In the Management Interface (VLAN ID) field, the default is 1. Enter a new VLAN IDonly if you want to change the management interface through which you manage theswitch and to which you assign IP information. The VLAN ID range is 1 to 1001.

    In the IP Address field, enter the IP address of the switch. In the IP Subnet Mask field,click the drop-down arrow, and select an IP Subnet Mask.

    In the Default Gateway field, enter the IP address for the default gateway (router).

    Enter your password in the Switch Password field. The password can be from 1 to 25alphanumeric characters, can start with a number, is case sensitive, allows embeddedspaces, but does not allow spaces at the beginning or end. In the Confirm SwitchPassword field, enter your password again.

    Step 13 (Optional) You can enter the Optional Settings information now or enter it later by usingthe device manager interface:

    In the Host Name field, enter a name for the switch. The host name is limited to 31characters; embedded spaces are not allowed.

    In the System Contact field, enter the name of the person responsible for the switch.In the System Location field, enter the wiring closet, floor, or building where theswitch is located.

    In the Telnet Access field, click Enable if you are going to use Telnet to manage theswitch by using the command-line interface (CLI). If you enable Telnet access, youmust enter a Telnet password.

    In the Telnet Password field, enter a password. The Telnet password can be from 1 to25 alphanumeric characters, is case sensitive, allows embedded spaces, but does notallow spaces at the beginning or end. In the Confirm Telnet Password field, enter theTelnet password again.

    In the SNMP field, click Enable to enable Simple Network Management Protocol(SNMP). Enable SNMP only if you plan to manage switches by usingCiscoWorks2000 or another SNMP-based network-management system.

    If you enable SNMP, you must enter a community string in the SNMP ReadCommunity field, the SNMP Write Community field, or both. SNMP communitystrings authenticate access to MIB objects. Embedded spaces are not allowed in SNMPcommunity strings. When you set the SNMP read community, you can access SNMPinformation, but cannot modify it. When you set the SNMP write community, you canaccess and modify SNMP information.

  • Refreshing the PC IP AddressAfter you complete Express Setup, you should refresh the PC IP address.

    For a dynamically assigned IP address, disconnect the PC from the switch, and reconnect it to thenetwork. The network DHCP server will assign a new IP address to the PC.

    For a statically assigned IP address, change it to the previously configured IP address.

    4 Managing the SwitchAfter completing Express Setup and installing the switch in your network, use the device manager orother management options described in this section for further configuration.

    Using the Device ManagerThe simplest way to manage the switch is by using the device manager that is in the switch memory.This is an easy-to-use web interface that offers quick configuration and monitoring. You can accessthe device manager from anywhere in your network through a web browser.

    Follow these steps:

    1. Launch a web browser on your PC or workstation.

    2. Enter the switch IP address in the web browser, and press Enter. The device manager page appears.

    3. Use the device manager to perform basic switch configuration and monitoring. Refer to the devicemanager online help for more information.

    4. For more advanced configuration, download and run the Cisco Network Assistant described inthe next section.

    Step 14 Click Submit to save your settings, or click Cancel to clear your settings.

    When you click Submit, the switch is configured and exits Express Setup mode. The PCdisplays a warning message and then attempts to connect with the new switch IP address.If you configured the switch with an IP address that is in a different subnet from the PC,connectivity between the PC and the switch is lost.

    Step 15 Disconnect the switch from the PC, and install the switch in your production network. Seethe Managing the Switch section on page 7 for information about configuring andmanaging the switch.

    If you need to rerun Express Setup, see the Resetting the Switch section on page 20.

  • 7 In Case of DifficultyIf you experience difficulty, help is available here and on Cisco.com. This section includes ExpressSetup troubleshooting, how to reset the switch, how to access help online, and where to find moreinformation.

    Troubleshooting Express SetupIf Express Setup does not run, or if the Express Setup page does not appear in your browser:

    Did you verify that POST successfully ranbefore starting Express Setup?

    If not, make sure that only the SYST and STATLEDs are green before pressing the Mode buttonto enter the Express Setup mode.

    Did you press the Mode button while theswitch was still running POST?

    If yes, wait until POST completes. Power cycle theswitch. Wait until POST completes. Confirm thatthe SYST and STAT LEDs are green. Press theMode button to enter Express Setup mode.

    Did you try to continue without confirmingthat the switch was in Express Setup mode?

    Verify that all LEDs above the Mode button aregreen. (The RPS LED is off.) If necessary, pressthe Mode button to enter Express Setup mode.

    Does your PC have a static IP address? If yes, before connecting to the switch, changeyour PC settings to temporarily use DHCP.

    Did you connect a crossover cable instead ofa straight-through Ethernet cable between aswitch port and the Ethernet port of the PC?

    If yes, connect a straight-through cable to anEthernet port on the switch and the PC. Wait 30seconds before entering 10.0.0.1 in the browser.

    Did you connect the Ethernet cable to theconsole port instead of to a 10/100 or10/100/1000 Ethernet port on the switch?

    If yes, disconnect from the console port. Connectto an Ethernet port on the switch and the PC.Wait 30 seconds before entering 10.0.0.1 in thebrowser.

    19

  • Resetting the SwitchThis section describes how to reset the switch by rerunning Express Setup. These are reasons why youmight want to reset the switch:

    You installed the switch in your network and cannot connect to it because you assigned the wrongIP address.

    You want to clear all configuration from the switch and assign a new IP address.

    You are trying to enter Express Setup mode and the switch LEDs start blinking when you pressthe Mode button (which means that the switch is already configured with IP information).

    Caution Resetting the switch deletes the configuration and reboots the switch.

    To reset the switch:

    Press and hold the Mode button. The switch LEDs begin blinking after about 2 seconds. Continueholding down the Mode button. The LEDs stop blinking after 8 more seconds, and then the switchreboots.

    The switch now behaves like an unconfigured switch. You can enter the switch IP information by usingExpress Setup as described in the Running Express Setup section on page 4.

    Accessing Help OnlineFirst look for a solution to your problem in the troubleshooting section of the Catalyst 2950 HardwareInstallation Guide or the Catalyst 2950 and Catalyst 2955 Software Configuration Guide onCisco.com. You can also access the Cisco Technical Support and Documentation website for a list ofknown hardware problems and extensive troubleshooting documentation, including:

    Factory defaults and password recovery

    Recovery from corrupted or missing software

    Switch port problems

    Did you wait 30 seconds after connecting theswitch and the PC before entering the IPaddress in your browser?

    If not, wait 30 seconds, re-enter 10.0.0.1 in thebrowser, and press Enter.

    Did you enter the wrong address in thebrowser, or is there an error message?

    If yes, re-enter 10.0.0.1 in the browser, and pressEnter.
